Greeting the New Year with FFXIV’s Heavensturn

Greeting the New Year with FFXIV’s Heavensturn

Tangle with a Tora

The first thing you want to do is speak to Tora Bugyo in the Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks. Characters who are below level 15 should take some time leveling up first before they can start it, though. If you fulfill that requirement, Tora Bugyo will ask you to complete the ‘Tora Tora, Burning Bright’ FATE in Middle La Noscea.

There was a glitch that caused the FATE to spawn irregularly, but it has since been fixed. You don’t have to wait long for a chance to encounter the Phantom Byakko and get your prize.Once done, return to Tora Bugyo to complete the quest. You’ll get a choice between the Golden or Silver Tora Kabuto cosmetic headgear for your FFXIV account. Along with that, there’s an achievement (Feline Fun) and 10 Heavensturn of the Tiger Tickets. Afterward, you may participate in the FATE for more tickets. Use the tickets to exchange for more rewards! These other rewards will be focused on in a further section.

Let Them Eat Cake

There’s also a repeatable quest while the event is ongoing. Talk to Tora Bugyo again and he’ll ask you to chat with Mochi Daikan in the Lower Decks of Limsa Lominsa. After doing so, go back to Tora Bugyo and you’ll receive 10 Magicked Prism (Advent Cakes). It’s an easy enough task to get some cakes, though some players might understandably skip doing this part.

Exchange Tickets for More Rewards

Heavensturn of the Tiger Tickets can be exchanged for more rewards. Here they are and how many tickets you’ll need for them.


  • Golden Tora Kabuto (5 tickets)
  • Silver Tora Kabuto (5 tickets)
  • The White Tiger (3 tickets)
  • 10 Zoni (1 ticket)
  • 10 Magicked Prism (Avent Cakes) (1 ticket)

The White Tiger is a cool housing furnishing to put in your house. It’s a screen depicting a tiger, perfect for the new year celebrations. Unfortunately, there aren’t any new FFXIV mounts posing as rewards this time. It would’ve been awesome to have a sleek tiger mount that’s easier to get than the Centurio Tiger. 

These rewards will only be available as long as the event is active. When Heavensturn 2022 ends, there’s no chance of getting them again. The FFXIV store will not stock these items, so don’t miss the opportunity to get them for your FF14 account!


Heavensturn 2022 started on January 5 and will end two weeks later, on January 19. That’s more than enough time to get all the rewards and celebrate the new year.

There’s still no word on the game’s resumption of sales, or other solutions to the congestion problem. Still, we can be sure that something is happening behind the scenes. Having no game sales means they’ve lost a big portion of their income. That’s a big no-no for business, so of course, they’re going to want this period of no sales as short as possible.

Players will have to be patient though. Either the devs finally get what they need, or the concurrent player count goes low enough for them to open the game for new and trial characters. The pandemic makes the former quite difficult, and the Endwalker expansion doesn’t help with the latter.

At any rate, for those who could continue to play, they can celebrate the year of the tiger in-game and out. You won’t take too much time farming FFXIV Gil for Heavensturn, so there’s no reason to buy FFXIV Gil for this event. You can enjoy it as much or as little as you want – just be sure to get all the rewards that you want because they won’t be available again (unless the devs allow a rerun).

After everything, keep enjoying FFXIV! Providing an enjoyable experience while playing is the main purpose of games, after all. Nobody was enjoying themselves while servers were congested, which is why the devs made the hard decision to suspend sales. It’s a hard pill to swallow, but it was the only way they saw to alleviate the situation.

Have a happy new year with FFXIV Heavensturn!
